Oct 1, 2012 - Wasp's

Ludlow, VT. Our tour includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. Not all areas are in their prime at the same time so our tour director always has lots of other activities for us. Today we went to Billings Farm and Museum in Woodstock, not the famous Woodstock of NY but a very pretty village in VT instead. The farm, once owned by one of the Rockefellers, is an operating dairy farm. We were able to get up close and personal with some of the cows. The museum showed life in the 1800’s. Cool. The best part, however, were the...

Sep 30, 2012 - Raindrops keep fallin' on my head...

Ludlow, VT. We made it into Vermont today. To get there, we drove the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire. The drive along the Kanc Highway takes one back in time. There are no comforts of the modern day world; no gas stations, no restaurants, no hotels or other businesses, just picturesque hills and mountain streams. The highway cuts through the White Mountain National Forest with lovely views of the White Mountains, when the clouds lifted, that is. The rain today was never a hard rain but it was persistent. One of our stops in New...

Jun 22, 2010 - Robert Frost, Bears and FRD

Today was an adventure! We set off to see the Robert Frost Interpretative Trail and the cabin in the woods where he spent summers and wrote a great deal of his poetry. The trail was closed except for a rather small portion. It was neat with Frost poems along the way. Because a great deal of road construction was going on, we could not get to the cabin. The day was not lost because went on to other small towns and loved our day. Actually the day was calm and easy until a mother bear and two cubs ran across the road in front of us. FRD...

Jun 21, 2010 - More Covered Bridges, Green Mountain National Forest and Cheese

Today was a driving day for Judy and a glove compartment day for FRD. I enjoyed the beautiful environment and cheese. I have told Judy we cannot buy any more cheese that we can't eat. Ha! The Green Mountains are beautiful and I love the covered bridges. We had a picnic and dinner at our condo which is lovely. The Jackson Gore Inn is a condo hotel and is a wonderful facility. Great exercise room and spa complete with steam room and sauna and hot tubs and indoor pool and outdoor pool. Judy forgot her bathing suit. . .enough said! Food at...

Jun 20, 2010 - Covered Bridges, Quaint Towns, and FRD Jumping the Train

A beautiful and fun-filled day. I love the covered bridges! I have seen three so far and we will see a bunch more on our day trips. Actually, we have fallen in love with Vermont. What do you call a southerner who summers in Vermont? We went to Woodstock and saw the Billings Farm and Museum. We walked from the beautiful town of Woodstock, about a mile and half round trip. Rested and had lunch and, of course, shopped a bit. Then on to Queechee to shop and see the Gorge. Cheese jumped in our car and I told it to get out that we were on a diet....

Jun 19, 2010 - A Wild Turkey Day in Vermont

We explored Ludlow and Weston today, both quaint little towns in central Vermont. Flat Rev. Don joined us for lunch at Bryant House Restaurant in Weston. We shared a Bryant House Ale Draft, a local ale that is VERY good, and some of the best New England Clam Chowder we have ever eaten. Afterwards FRD asked if he could rest at the Reindeer Hitching Post in front of the Christmas House. On the way home from Weston, we almost ran over a wild turkey (not the kind we love to drink), but the real thing. I don't know who was more frightened, me as...

Jun 18, 2010 - Rescuing FRD and Escaping to Vermont

OMG!!!! We almost lost FRD. We left him in a bar in Harper's Ferry, WV and he was kidnapped by a Thug seeking ransom money. We got emails demanding $499.95 or else. We found out the "else" meant he would be dropped from the roof a three story house and for a little guy, that was definitely a death sentence. We talked the Thug out of that "else" by promising to pay the ransom. We thought that we could work with the police to find our beloved FRD. Unfortunately they were all eating doughnuts and drinking coffee and didn't want to be bothered....
